The GAO testified again to Congress on how DoD acquisition programs are way behind schedule and way over budget. Imagine that? This has been a running refrain for the last forty years or so. One of the issues is that the government workforce managing these programs has gotten smaller while demands have increased over th e last six years. A further one is that the services don’t cooperate on requirements. Fixes have been proposed and implemented many times, but the biggest problems of requirements growth after initiation and relying on technology reaches never seems to go away.
